2013 CALENDAR OF EVENTS
WAYS TO BE INVOLVED:
Alumni Association Board of Directors Openings
The School of Law Alumni Association Board of Directors is seeking nominations from the Mason Law Alumni community to fill potential upcoming openings on the Board for 2013-2014. If you have any questions about the Board, are interested in placing your name on the ballot, or nominating someone else, please contact President Kathryn Dickerson, '99, at email@example.com on or before May 1.
Law Student and Graduate Spring Hiring Program
Looking for spring, summer, or permanent legal help (paid or unpaid)? Then consider using the free services of the the law school's Spring Hiring Season Program to attract law students or graduates. Our career development staff will work with you to advertise your needs and can oversee resume collection and interview scheduling. For further information on participating in this program, contact the Career, Academic and Alumni Services Office at 703-993-8020.
Comprehensive Alumni Update Project
Our alumni are on the go and often change emails, jobs, and locations, making it hard to keep up with them. We have contracted with Harris Connect to update contact information for our alumni around the world so that they can keep up-to-date on news and activities from Mason Law. Harris will also help produce a beautiful hardcover publication as we prepare for George Mason Law’s upcoming 35th Anniversary in 2014. The publication will feature an introduction with full color pictures, prominent Mason Law personas and a history of the school. The publication will also include a section for photos and memories from your days at George Mason University School of Law. There is no obligation to purchase the anniversary alumni directory to have your information included or just update us with your current information.
Harris hosts our secure online alumni directory and specializes in alumni publications. Alumni will be contacted—by phone, email and mail—over the next few months to verify and update their contact and career information. We would appreciate your cooperation in updating your contact information. All updates are returned to George Mason University School of Law so that our database remains current.
George Mason University School of Law values your privacy and treats your information in a secure manner. Harris Connect is only collecting information for purposes of the publication and to update the secure online alumni directory. Your information will not be released to any third parties, and you decide whether or not your personal information is published—make your wishes clear to the Harris representative. More detailed information about the project is linked here.
